Platoon: Characters

History Through Film

Mr. Clark

slide2
Well, here I am, anonymous all right. With guys nobody really cares about. They come from the end of the line, most of \'em. Small towns you never heard of: Pulaski, Tennessee; Brandon, Mississippi; Pork Van, Utah; Wampum, Pennsylvania. Two years\' high school\'s about it, maybe if they\'re lucky a job waiting for them back at a factory, but most of \'em got nothing. They\'re poor, they\'re the unwanted, yet they\'re fighting for our society and our freedom. It\'s weird, isn\'t it? They\'re the bottom of the barrel and they know it. Maybe that\'s why they call themselves grunts, cause a grunt can take it, can take anything. They\'re the best I\'ve ever seen, Grandma. The heart & soul.
